  1. Odd black appearance when selecting two paths in succession

    Mac OS 10.14.6; Illustrator 24.2
    When I select two paths/strokes with the direct selection tool in succession, using the shift key to add the next path, the first path displays as a solid black path and obscures the anchor points. I often need to see those anchor points.

  2. Objects deselect on copy or paste (Illustrator 2019)

    This is a bug, not an idea.

    Sometimes when copying an object or pasting, the copied or pasted object does not remain selected.

    This is far less than ideal, especially when using Paste in Front.

    Happens in Illustrator 2019 / OSX Catalina

  3. Scaling freeform gradient objects with real-time drawing/editing on.

    When I have real-time drawing turned on, I can't select multiple objects that contain freeform gradients and scale them without losing the appearance of the objects. A single object works, more than one at a time will not. If I turn off real-time in preferences, this resolves the issue.

    Mac os 10.14, Illustrator c 24.2

    Please see videos for demo:

  5. Pasting goes to the back of the layer - and not on top!!!!!

    When copying an object and then pasting the new object goes to the back of the stack of objects and not to the front! Please fix and make it go to the top.

  6. Keyboard increment setting bug

    Illustrator 24.2.1
    Mac OS 14.6 iMac Late 2015 27"

    Same problem exists as of 24.2.1: the default for Keyboard Increment does not stick properly when units are set to Picas. My existing default of 0p1 (1 point) has changed to 0p0.9996 (0.9996 point), and any attempt to change it to 0p1 while in Picas does not stick. However, if units are Points, it stays correctly at 1pt, but change the units to Picas, the value changes to 0p0.9996.

    UPDATE: this happens in other places than the Prefernce for Keyboard Increment, and also happens whether the units are Picas or Points.…

  8. Reveal in Bridge not working

    At first, I was trying to 'Reveal in Bridge'. Bridge would open but wouldn't navigate to my link.

    So I updated to the latest version of Illustrator CC (I was one version behind) and now the 'Reveal in Bridge' option is greyed out.

    How about a nice 'Reveal in Finder/Explorer' option that we'd all prefer?

  9. Dragging Objects with Shift key hold down broken

    After updating to Version 24.2 dragging objects with the Shift Key hold down does not work anymore. Instead of aligning the Object it forces it to stay in place. The same bug appears while doing "Alt-Drag" together with the Shift Key. This is a essential function in Illustrator an I think a lot of people use it every day. I will step back to the last version until this is fixed... Surprisingly this occurs only on one of our two Macs...

  11. Layer's options display 'Dim Images' is on when it's off

    When you go to the layer's options and set Template tick there, Ai autoticks Dim Images to' (makes sense). If you turn Dim off, Ai won't apply Dim to the layer. But when you double-click layer's options, Ai will show Dim as ticked.
    Quite an old bug.

  12. Redo simply freeze my display. I've Illustrator 24.2 in Win10 Home. I put my laptop on sleep. And then I put it on. Working again.

    I performed multiple redo operations. and the screen just froze. I click buttons, tap mouse but nothing. Then I put my laptop on sleep. When I awaken the laptop it was in some other window, like the input were processed but only my display it was not working. Please resolve soon.

  13. Allow to isolate a compound path when only a part of it is selected

    Since we can't isolate components of compound path and shapes it is strange that Ai won't isolate a whole compound path/shape when you select only a part of it.
    Try this:
    1. Create compounds path/shape — like a torus
    2. Use Direct/Group Selection tool to select only the inner circle if your torus
    3. The 'Isolate Selected Object' button won't appear on the Control panel and the assigned hotkey won't do anything.

    This should be fixed. Ai should allow to isolate a compound path/shape when you select a part of it.
    Also, I think that Ai should be able to…

  14. magically appearing anchor points

    When I join paths, use the pathfinder tools, or shapebuilder options, anchors that I DID NOT create, appear. There is no rhyme or reason to when it will decide to do it. So annoying. Over time this degrades the image when enlarging, shrinking, offsetting paths and a number of other features I don't want to waste my time listing. I don't care what you say about vectors and your program, I've been doing this a long time, it happens. I personally deal with vinyl plotters. Plotters don't like unnecessary or extra anchor points. It can slow down the cut process…

  15. Crash on open/new documenti after window 10 update 4560960

    After 4560960 update, illustrator crashes on open or new document.
    Uninstalling update does fix it.

    Windows 10 home, all latest updates applied, happens on 10 machines, all different hardware.

    Not sure if illustrator or windows bug. For now delayed updates for a week, hoping in a fix soon.

  16. Zero-height marquee

    Please study the GIF attached.


    1. I want to select an edge of the yellow-beige path

    2. I grab Direct selection tool and drag a frame over the edge — OK

    3. I make it faster — still OK

    4. I make it with my usual speed and get the marquee that has 0 height.
      It happens with me all the time! I don't fake it, I just automatically try to drag the less tall frame as possible, because sometimes I need to select quite a tiny segment.
      And when it happens — Illustrator selects nothing.

    Well, this is wrong.
    If you draw a…

  17. Latest version takes a long time to open and save files often 5 minutes or more for a simple file this is not acceptable.

    latest version of illustrator is taking forever to save or open files often more than 5 minutes for a simple file, this is not a network issue as it does the same even to desktop. this is not acceptable and needs fixing very quickly

  18. Ghost element sneaks in my groups

    Hi!!

    I encounter a bug in Illustrator. You will find the description below but also a video that explains a lot better what I am trying to say.
    1) OS: Windows
    Version: 10.0
    System Architecture: x64
    Illustrator version: 24.1.2

    2) When I just try to select a group from the active window.
    3) I expect to only select element from this group
    4) Somehow there is a ghost element that I can see alone when I unselect my group. This ghost stays there and mess up my resizing then..
